I use a 'mums diary' to keep track of everything during the day and then update SparkPeople in the evening when I have a little time to myself. These diaries are great as they have seperate columns for each child, which I use for tracking my fruit/veg intake, my excercise, my steps and my sleep. It keeps me on top of things.

Keeping track of everything I eat every day has been crucial to me losing weight. The moment I stop keeping track is when I see the scale start to slowly slip up to higher numbers. Keeping track of my food intake keeps me accountable - I am not tempted to "cheat" or make poor choices when I know I am going to keep track of it!
